Review for Defensa Animal De Rincon, Rincon, PR, USA
I visited Rincon, Puerto Rico 3 years ago on vacation, where I met an extremely fearful, skinny, apparently nursing young dog mother. My sister and I tamed and fed her for the week we were there, having several conversations with Cynthia from DAR, who encouraged us to take her with us when we left because that would be the best fate for her. Neither my sister nor I thought this could be possible, so we had to leave her behind. The next day another DAR volunteer found this sweet, scared dog, and was able to get her in the car to take her home and foster her, along with her many other foster dogs.
When I got back home, I sent DAR a bunch of pictures of this doggy so they could put her up for adoption on their website. The next day, I saw her picture up there, and realized I needed to have her with me. So the DAR folks organized everything (these are all volunteers, mind you) from her health certificate to a ride to the airport at midnight for her journey to Boston.
My sweet Pupito (I know it should be Pupita--forget about it!) is living on Cape Cod now, fat and happy, thanks to the infinitely kind and generous folks of DAR.
